Edward VIII Fiji 1 Penny Unc

Because Edward VIII abdicated in 1936, no British coins were struck for circulation. On the other hand a number of Edward VIII coins were struck for overseas colonies and dependents. The most difficult one to get is the Fiji Penny. It has been some years since we were last able to offer this coin to our collectors. Ian went on a buying trip to New Zealand last year and was able to find a small quantity of this difficult coin. Each coin has a hole in the middle, I guess that was so the locals could carry them on a string. In Uncirculated condition.

New Edward VIII Milled Edge Collection

Last year was the 80th anniversary of the Year of Three Kings, George V, Edward VIII and George VI. ICB issued a beautiful Edward VIII collection, full crownsized in eight different metals with a milled edge. We bought the entire mintage, except for one set that is being put into auction. Other Edward VIII issues are being sold on eBay for over £245 a collection. The metals they are struck in are: Sterling Silver, Golden Alloy, Copper, Gold Plated Copper, Aluminium, Polished Steel, Pewter and Nickel Silver. A youthful portrait of the uncrowned King is on one side and a new version of St. George slaying the dragon is on the other side. Only 100 collections made with the milled edge, that is all, forever.

New Guinea 3 Kings Collection

We were looking through some Sterling Silver Shilling that we bought from New Guinea and we realised that we had two Kings represented, George V and George VI. Then we remembered that we had some Pennies of King Edward VIII of New Guinea, the only coin struck for him. So why not combine the three and you would have 3 Kings of New Guinea. So here is what you will get a Sterling Silver Shilling of King George V of New Guinea, all of these coins are struck with a hole in the middle for wearing around your neck. They are in Very Fine condition. A Penny of King Edward VIII in Uncirculated condition. Finally a Sterling Silver Shilling of King George VI also in Very Fine condition. We can’t think of any other country that we could do this for, nor any other country so far away and so exotic.

BWA Edward VIII 1/10th Penny 1936 Unc

British West Africa had three different denominations struck and that were actually used as day to day money. They are the Penny, Halfpenny and Tenth Penny, all were struck with holes in the middle, as the locals had no pockets and the hole allowed them to be stuck on a string that they could then wear. Not only were there three denominations, but they were struck at three different Mints, some of which are scarce. Offered here is the 1/10 penny in uncirculated.
